The way for the competition process in Dessau is cleared
The Foundation Board of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has once again confirmed at today's special meeting the intention to erect the new building of the Bauhaus Museum at City Park. Furthermore, the Foundation Board decided about the exhibition and communication concept for the Bauhaus Museum as a basis for further proceedings. In addition, the committee agreed on the further competition process and instructed the Director to apply, by secured total funding, for an open two-phase competition of the new building project. The Foundation Board recommended nine professionals for the Advisory Board of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation (among others Ute Eskildsen - Professor of Photography in Essen, Daniel Hug - Director of the Art Cologne, and Prof. Dr. Martino Stierli - Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA in New York).
“Bürgerinfo Bauhaus” website goes online for the people of Weimar
Weimar gains a new Bauhaus Museum. For the people of Weimar, the realisation of such a building project raises many questions and reservations. The website "Bürgerinfo Bauhaus", designed specifically to address these issues and in association with the building project, is therefore now live online. It supplies information relating to the building project and is also designed as a platform for exchange so that people of Weimar can contact those in charge and air their views in public. A Facebook page will also be published.
On thursday 31st July, 2014 at 5 pm a roundtable discussion will take place at the Masters' House Muche/Schlemmer. Michael Erlhoff (Cologne), Stefan Schridde (Berlin) and Julia Amberger discuss the topics “using rather than owning” / “new trends in shareconomy and design” / “plannend obsolescence”. In English.
